Johnny and George Huynh are from Dorchester, Massachusetts, a town where 42% of the children live in poverty. They were raised by a disabled single mom from Vietnam who was unable to work and did not speak English. Their father killed himself after he and their mother got divorced. Despite the odds stacked against them, Johnny and George were both at the top of their class in high school when Billy Baker from The Boston Globe first covered this incredible story. And two years later, Billy has received word that George has been accepted into Yale University.

This is their inspiring story of triumph over tribulation.
